Vintage for the Everyday!

The Fabulous Friday Challenge this week (7.1) at Frosted Designs, was to use a vintage photo on your project.  I didn't have any vintage or heritage photos that needed scrapping, so I decided to use a vintage filter on this photo of my daughter to acheive the same effect.  From there, I was able to keep a vintage theme to my lo.  These papers from the Life's Journey pack from K&Company were a perfect match for this challenge.  I used one of the Martha Stewart border punches to make the frame around my photo.  And the flowers were cut from an SVG file on my Expression...I really love the way those turned out!!  My Singer hand-held and I are having a love/hate relationship.  I love using it on my pages, but hate when I mess up the stitching!!  Things went a little haywire on the right hand side...but I've given up perfection on my pages a long time ago!!
